Secret Omen

LP (Item 2848) Chocolate City, 1979 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.90 11

Great work from Cameo's best period – moving into a smooth groove that shows that they've still got their hooks in the funk (as you'll hear on cuts like "The Rock" and "Energy"), but also showing a great talent for more sophisticated modern soul numbers, like the stellar "Sparkle", a great mellow track that has a sublime Earth Wind & Fire feel to it. Other tracks include "Find My Way" and "New York". (Cover & labels have some marker.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Smoke
Chocolate City, 1976. Sealed
This group were one of a number to use the name Smoke during the 70s – but at some point they were forced to change their name to Black Smoke, and you'll see the record listed both ways, but with the same cover.

Midnight Desire
Chocolate City, 1980. Sealed
A sweet, smooth stepper from the great Randy Brown – and a record that's got the same sublime mix of mellow grooves and earthy vocals that you might find on some of Tyrone Davis' best late 70s work for Columbia! Tunes are all plenty darn fresh – written by the team of Homer Banks and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Showtime
Smash, 1964. Very Good
One of the odder James Brown records from the 60s – as it includes 11 studio tracks with overdubbed audience. James was under contract with King at the same time, and couldn't record new vocal material for Smash – so the record doesn't contain any JB originals, but covers of Louis ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cheryl Lynn
Columbia, 1978. Very Good
Massive work from the great Cheryl Lynn – and a key bridge between late 70s disco and the newer grooves of the 80s club scene! The album's a mix of midtempo groovers with a few mellower tracks – and it's got a tight, slightly jazzy sound that was very fresh at the time, and which still ... LP, Vinyl record album

Right On!
Juggernaut, 1968. Very Good Gatefold
One of the wildest albums ever by the mighty Last Poets!

Brother Brother Brother
T Neck, 1972. Very Good
An amazing record! This one's probably our favorite Isley Brothers album of all time – and it's a perfect blend of all the styles they were into at the time – heavy funk, sweet soul, folksy rock, and rolling uptempo grooves! The Brothers handle all styles equally well, and the album's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Very Special
Elektra, 1981. Very Good+
An excellent bit of modern soul by Debra Laws – really her only album, but an instant classic nonetheless!

Right On Brother
Prestige, 1970. Very Good
A fantastic album of funky jazz guitar – by one of the best players in the genre!

It's My Life, Baby

Some of his classic 60's material, recorded live at Pepper's Lounge on the South Side of Chicago in 1966. With the tracks "It's My Life Baby", "Country Girl", and "Shake it Baby". Great Chicago blues/soul crossover stuff. LP, Vinyl record album
